Jeff Dunham: Arguing With Myself 2006 NR CC

Amazon Instant Video

(1,255) IMDb 8.2/10

As straight man to some of the most hilarious pint-sized partners in show business, Jeff Dunham has become one of the most successful touring comics ever and has amassed legions of loyal fans! At the American Comedy Awards, Dunham was voted Male Stand-Up Comic of the Year, an honor shared with the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Jeff Foxworthy and Robin Williams. Thousands of sold-out theater and comedy club performances, his own top-rated special on Comedy Central and countless TV guest spots - including numerous Tonight Show appearances (with both Leno and Carson) - have won him accolades and success. The reason why is very simple: he and his buddies are funny as hell. Oh, and by the way... Jeff Dunham is a ventriloquist.

Its really hard to review a standup comedy routine "critiquingly". If it's GREAT, like this one is, I would have to resort to the overwhelming non-lack of cliches plastered on the covers of movie boxes and posters across the Land.

What it boils down to, is this (and its very simple): This is one of the funniest and most tallented stand-up acts I have ever seen. You have your all-time greats like Pryor and (fill in your fav here) but did they hold three-way conversations at lightning speed and legibly conveying three unique voices with three different personalities? Either he has incredible tallent or he's related to Emily Rose.

In short, its fantastic - Excellent - pullamuscle funny - and man does it deliver. Highly recommended for you adults who need a change in pace. ~saos~

This "reviewer" did not watch Jeff's performance very carefully. The entire audience was NOT white; yes, it was predominantly so, but the editors of the performance were careful to show several minority attendees in the theater.

Besides, Jeff tackles EVERYONE in this performance: Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Southerners, NASCAR fans, the elderly, the stupid, the deaf, the blind, and those with bladders too weak to sit through an entire show. (Walter's ridicule of the guy sneaking out of the auditorium to go to the bathroom is priceless!)

I have shown "Arguing With Myself" to old and young alike, and the result is ALWAYS the same: tears pouring from eyes, sides splitting, and thighs raw from being slapped. You will LOVE this DVD.

I've been a fan of Dunham for a long time - I saw him live in Orlando in 1992(?) and was fan before that. I knew what to expect, but my wife (who has belly-laughed exactly once since we were married 8 years ago) was totally taken by surprise - she laughed so-o-o hard!!! Dunham is funny, creative and his puppets are so believable you can actually suspend belief and think of them as people. Dunham's wit is great - even off the cuff things like when a member of the audience steps out on a call of nature - Dunham waits until he comes back to continue.... One of the funniest comics you'll ever see...

Jeff has a funny routine. His characters include "Walter", a sort of elderly curmudgeon; "Sweet Daddy D" - sorry, that's "Sweeeeeeeeet Daddy D", a playa in management position (PIMP); "Peanut", described as a South Pacific islander but could really be some alien; "Jose Jalapeno", a Cuban condiment (on a "steeeeek"); and "Bubba J", a slow-witted beer-guzzling NASCAR aficianado.

Some of the jokes might be a bit politically incorrect, but as Jeff and "Shrek 2"-director friend surmise in the optional commentary, they are accepted because they are spoken by a puppet, not a human.

I watched it twice (on successive nights) and loaned it to a friend who thought it was bleeping hilarious and also is going to watch it again before returning it.

You get the option of a "bleeped" or "unbleeped" version.
Extras include a commentary, a couple bloopers, and a video of Jeff's dog humping one particular puppet.

One of the biggest problems that I had watching this show on Comedy Central was that I laughed so hard I missed half of the jokes so I had to watch it over again! I first saw Jeff Dunham on one of the talk shows years ago and I remembered Jeff's 3 main stars, Walter, Peanut, and Jose Jalepeno (On A Steek). I remember praying that I would get a chance to see this great ventriloquist again and finally my prayer's are answered. After years of getting laughs from vulgarity riddled standups from the likes of Red Foxx, Eddie Murphy, and Andrew Dice Clay, I finally can have a stand up comedy that is hilarious and I can watch with my children.
In this standup, Jeff introduces 2 new friends, Bubba J and Sweet Daddy Dee who are as funny as the other 3. Bubba is a bucktoothed,beer belly redneck who is hysterically strereotyped as such, Sweet Daddy Dee is Jeffs new manager who insists he's Jeff's pimp. Though both new characters are hysterical, Walter (the grouchy old man) and Peanut (you would swear he's on speed), and Jose Jalapeno(On A Steek)are still my favorites.One of the greatest strengths of Jeff is his ability to bring forth totally different personalities as if 5 different comedians are voicing for each. Jeff jokes are funny and best of all, done in good taste.
All I can say to anyone who's not interested in this video is "Your Loss". These are 6 funny dudes you'll miss out on or is it 1 funny dude with 5 puppets?

It's been awhile since a stand up comedian has actually brought tears to my eyes. After seeing Jeff Dunham's show on Comedy Central I immediately went to Amazon.com and pre-ordered it. It's sure a refreshing act, since you have all these other comedians doing stupid red neck jokes all the time.

......Because you'll laugh so hard you'll mess your pants!

I became a Fully devoted fan of Dunham and Walter when they

made several tv appearances on TNN's early days when Ralph Emory (with Shotgun Red) were co-hosting Prime Time Country) and then later when Gary Chapman took over hosting duties.

Jeff Dunham IS Hil-ARIOUS! and Walter has his own brand of

(I'll run you down with my car) sense of skeptical humor about the insanities of the human condition.. you can't help but find yourself smiling as He ACTUALLY MAKES SENSE.

MY total All out favorite on this program though was Peanut!

Only once before have I laughed so hard I cried. (Robin Williams Live at the Met) was the other time. Talk about Side-splitting laughter! I laughed so hard at jeff's antics and interaction with Peanut (who accuses Jeff outright of selling his Crack)/however this is TOTALLY a *Family* funny show.

Peanut seems like a schiztoid on speed--but in a good and Wildly funny way. (We should wonder why his nickname isn't "Wild thang?" Overall... I think anyone who wants a great laugh DEFINITELY SHOULD BUY THIS DVD. If there were More stars than 5 for the rating scale, I'd say "Arguing with myself" was Surely--

OFF THE CHARTS HILARIOUS!
